Editor Star: A communication from
Mr. L. S. Light, in your paper of Oct.
10th, which has. reproduced in the Pa Pa-latka
latka Pa-latka News of Oct. 25th, has just been
read by me. Mr. Light makes one
mistake in his article relative to the
board of health. The half mill levy
for this board is not a constitutional
provision, it is statutory, and can be
changed at any time by legislative
action. When this board was estab established,
lished, established, in 1889, the state was put in
good shape cities and towns cleaned
up, quarantine stations provided, on
an annual outlay of about $40,000. As
the assessed value of the property .n .n-creased,
creased, .n-creased, the receipts were larger, un until
til until in 1909, there was quite a sur surplus
plus surplus in the fund. The legislature in
its wisdom transferred $60,000 of this
surplus to the pension fund. (Chapter
5934, Laws of Florida.) Although the
amounts collected have- increased
largely since that date, there has not
been any more surplus to be, diverted
to other, useful purposes the board
has managed to spend all of it
whether beneficially to the public or
not, only an examination of all the
"expense" accounts will show.1 The
half mill levy will produce $175,0P0 in
1918, and from a statement from the
management of the board there will
not be any -surplus to use the ex expression
pression expression made "there aint goin' to be
no core."
The taxpayers should demand of
their legislature that they amend this
law, levying only such an amount as
might be necessary to carry on the
work of-the board, on an economical
basis. At present, there is at least
$100,000 annually being wasted by
this board, that the public does not
receive any benefit from. If the'board
would use good business judgment
and only spend money where some
good was to be accomplished, the
could do the work, efficiently on not
over $75,000 per year.
As to the proposed ten-mill school
tax amendment, Mr. Light is quite
correct in, his statements. We have
all the law now that is necessary, in
giving all the money the schools re require.
quire. require. The one-mill state and seven
mills county levy for 1917 yielded
about $2,560,000 for schools; the 1918
tax of eight mills on a three hundred
and fifty million assessment, .will
bring in $2,800,000. This does not in include
clude include the special school district tax,
which will be more than one million
The assessment was made in 1918,
presumably on a 50 per cent basis,
which, however, is a fiction. It was
actually about 25 per cent. There is
about $1,250,000,000 of property in
the state, if it was all assessed at its
true cash value, as required by law.
But, accepting the 1918 assessment as
being on a 50 per cent basis, the tax
commission is going to insist that the
19 f 9 assessment be made at full cash
value, as the law requires, and the as assessors
sessors assessors and county commissioners
taking oath that they will comply
with the law, they will be expected to
do so. By doubling the 1918 roll and
allowing for a normal increase, the
1919 roll should show a minimum
$750,00,000 valuation. The present
law would allow a levy of eight nrtlls
on this, which would yield $6,000,000.
If the amendment is adopted, have the
taxpayers any guarantee that the
county boards will not levy the full
amount, 11 mills, which would yield

them up. The five minor school boards
it suggests could not do anything
more than the sub-district trustees
are now doing and would in fact be in
their way. The members of said
boards would have to meet at least
once a month, at least two members
of each board would have to go sever several
al several miles from home, they would have
to be paid per diem and mileage and
they would add at least. $75 a month
to the school expenses of each county.
The Tribune man has been writing
glittering generalities on the school
question, but we are willing to bet he
has little real knowledge of his sub subject,
ject, subject, and if any person walked in on
him and asked him half a dozen lead leading
ing leading questions about the state, and
county school systems he couldn't an
swer them to save, his life.
So far as we have been able to note
the Ocala Star and the Punta Gorda
Herald are the only Florida papers
opposed to better schools. -Tampa
The Star has taken the position it
holds on this issue in behalf of an
over-taxed people against what it con considers
siders considers an excessive, untimely and un unpatriotic
patriotic unpatriotic demand. Any person or pa-.
per that says or intimates that the
Star opposes good schools or better
schools makes a statement that is
diametrically opposite to the truth.
This is as mild and diplomatic a way
as we know how to say it.',
The supreme court has decided that
the legislature cannot appropriate one
cent for the general maintenance of
the public schools. St. Augustine Re Record.
cord. Record. If such be the case, all the money
appropriated for the University of
Florida and the State College for
Women will have to be refunded, for
they are public schools.
The Star sincerely regrets the
death of William T. Appleyard, son
of Editor T. J. Appleyard, who died
at Camp Colt hospital in Gettysburg,
Pa., Oct. 18. We regret his death not
only because he was the son of an old
friend, a good citizen and training to
make a good soldier, but because sev several
eral several years ago he spent some weeks
in Ocala and made a great many
friends here. Our deepest sympathy
is extended to his bereaved father and
other relatives.
Saturday, ex-Tax Collector Rast of
Duval county succeeded in getting his
name on the ticket to be voted Nov.
5. On-the same day, he was arrested
for embezzlement. If there is no other
candidate for the office on the ticket
he. will be elected if only one vote is
cast for him. We should think Mr.
Rast would be anxious to be forgot

ten. If he is elected and the courts

recognize his election it will be the
governor's duty to remove him again.
In his latest article, Superintendent
Brinson asks: "What are you going to
say?" He refers to the request he
thinks likely soon to be made by Red-
dick, Mcintosh and other places for
new schoolhouses.
We think a good way to do would
be to follow the principle of not
crossing a bridge till we come to it.
It would be well to put off saying any anything
thing anything until the question is asked. We
can hardly imagine the people of any
place asking for a new schoolhouse
now, when they know that all work workmen
men workmen and all material are urgently
needed in war work, and it is prac practically
tically practically impossible to obtain either ex except
cept except for the most necessary repairs.
We might answer, Mr. Brinson,
however, by quoting Mr. Brinson. A
few weeks since, with him, we visited
the Ocala colored schools, and seeing
the fine building put up about four
years ago, and learning it had cost
about seven thousand dollars, we re
marked that now it could not be built
for fifteen thousand. Mr. Brinson
said, "It could not be put up at all
now." '. f,
A few days ago, we asked Mr. Brin
son what could be done if the Ocala
high school or primary building was
burned. He said we would have to use
the old school house, and if that
wasn't sufficient, eke out with private
Mr. Brinson, asking on one hand
what we are. going to say if requested
to build new schoolhouses, and on the
other confessing that they can't be
built, is Brinson versus Brinson. Like
Mary Pickford, he plays two charac
ters on one film.
Mr. Brinson has also informed us
that at one of the places where he says
in his article a new schoolhouse is
needed, there are less than a dozen
scholars. We suspect that some of
the others are in the same fix. We
hardly think it would pay either that
community or the county to build
11 -a
new scnooinouse, costing twelve or
fifteen hundred dollars. The children
might be taken by wagon or auto to
the next nearest school, or a couple
of rooms in a private residence might
be rented. In fact, there are severa
things that might be done to tide over
the emergency.
Mr. Brinson wants to know if the
places which have good schoolhouses
built with the aid of the county funds
are going to act the dog in the man manger
ger manger in regard to the places that
haven't. 4
This dog in the manger comparison
is a figure of speech, and as we all
know figures of speech seldom add up
correctly. We do not think, from our
acquaintance with their people, that
Ocala, Citra, Dunnellon and" other
places with comparatively new schoo
houses have any of the dog in the
manger spirit in them especially at
the present price of mangers. But,
even if their mangers were chewed
down almost flat, they would have to
put up with them until the war is
over and some years afterward. It
looks now like the war will end in a
year, cut there will be as great
demand for labor and building mater
ia! for several years as there is now.
Perhaps greater. There will be ships
to build, cities,-villages and homes
railroads and public works to rebuild
m tremendous amounts, tor years
after the tvar is over. Let the people
be careful how they tax themselves.
As to How to Make Up Christmas

Atlanta, October 19. In mailing
Christmas parcels overseas it is im
portant that only cartons provided by

the Red Cross is the only agency au-
thorized by the war and postoffice de

rier for Christmas gifts. Only one
parcel will be accepted from an indi
vidual and the overseas label must be
affixed to this to insure its transmis

Major Dan Morgan Smith Promoted
on the Battlefield
The following from a Chicago
newspaper refers to Lieut.-CoL. Dan
Morgan Smith, eldest son of Dr. D. M.
I Smith of this city. Lieut.-Col. Smith
was the guest of his father here some
twenty years ago and is well remem remembered
bered remembered by many Ocalans.
At It Again
Dan Morgan Smith is at it again.
"Born and reared in Virginia, suh,
and proud of it, suh," this fighter
now of Chicago has at last found a
scrap that appeals to his militant soul.
Cables from the American front in
France yesterday announced that
'Major Dan Morgan Smith had been
promoted on the field of battle to a
ieutenant-colonelcy for distinguished
Chicagoans who know Daniel Mor
gan. Smith were not surprised. His
life has been one long fight after
anpther. In the Spanish-American
war he was a member of the old Third
Virginia. This regiment never got
out of sight of home, but Daniel Mor
gan staged several good scraps right
hi the camp.
, "Cussed Out" Spaniards
He spent his time 'cussing" out the
Spaniards and begging to be trans transferred
ferred transferred to the fighting forces in Cuba.
For these few daily remarks, Dan
Morgan Smith as constantly in,
trouble with his superior officers and
they "do say that there were severa
hne battles back of tne company
Dan Morgan Smith was next heard
of in Florida, where he joined the
militia as a private, rising to the rank
of captain and then throwing up his
commission and returning to the
ranks again.
Tiring of the South, Daniel Morgan
Smith came to Chicago and entered
the practice of law. Judges will tes testify
tify testify that Daniel Morgan continued
his scrapping proclivities. Judge Ow
ens once sent him to a police station
in a patrol wagon after Captain Dan
ial Morgan Smith (he had joined the
old "Fighting Seventh") refused to
vacate the armory on a court order.
Just to keep his hand in, he ran for
Congress as a democrat in the Third
district, a republican stronghold.
When Edward F. Dunne was elect
ed mayor, Capt. Smith was made as
sistant corporation counsel.. James
Hamilton Lewis was his chief,
Daniel Morgan conceived the ambi
tion of outdressing his superior. City
Hall square and its environs well re remember
member remember the "battle of clothes."
If Colonel Lewis appeared in a
frock coat, Daniel Morgan Smith
would immediately parade himself in
one at least two inches longer.
When Dunne was elcted governor,
he named Capt. Daniel Morgan Smith
as judge advocate of the state with
the title of major. When Villa started
his trouble in Mexico, Daniel Morgan
swore he was going to get Villa's
Governor Dunne told Kim to stay
where he was. Daniel Morgan then
said he would desert and enlist as a
private. Company D of the "Old
Fighting Seventh" welcomed him
back, however, as its captain.
Served Under Funston
Capt Daniel Morgan Smith soon
established the reputation of being
the "niftiest" officer under Funston's
command. The uniforms and medals
he wore7 were the envy and talk of
San Antonio.
His most exciting adventure, how however,
ever, however, "was with a scorpion which bit
his foot while he was peacefuly doz dozing
ing dozing in his ,tent and dreaming of mili military
tary military conquest.
The whole camp was startled by
shrieks and yells. Capt. Daniel Mor Morgan
gan Morgan Smith, in his pink silk pajamas
broke, through his tent.
"Make way for an officer, men, a
varmint has bitten me!" said Capt.
Dan Morgan Smith as he made the
hundred yards to the field hospital in
nine and three-quarters flat.
Shortly after this Capt. Daniel
Morgan Smith and Col. Dan Moriarty
had a good average man's sized
scrap, which resulted in the captain
resigning his commission.
Now here's the real news of this
story. When we declared war on
Germany, Daniel Morgan Smith,
without saying a word to
a corn-
went to Texas, entered an
training camp and received
mission as a captain.
Here's -.What He's Done
And now just look what the cables
say he's gone and done, as described
by a captain serving under him:
"When Major Smith led his battal battalion
ion battalion beyond the lines it was surround surrounded
ed surrounded by Germans. The men fought for
thre days and were reduced in num number
ber number from 1220 to 325 before other
elements came up to their assistance.
They kept up, such a fight that the
Germans thought an entire regiment
was there. t
"The major gave orders to his men
not to permit the Germans to get
close enough to discover their number
unless they were prisoners. One
bunch of twenty-seven Germans was
captured. After surrendering and see seeing
ing seeing the small number of the Ameri Americans
cans Americans they threw grenades, hoping to
escape. None did.
"Major Smith lost four adjutants
in one day, showing how hot the
spot was in which he ound himself.
He killed four men himself, which is
some record for a fighting major. His
battalion is known as the 'Battalion
of Death."'

After several weeks of illness, Mr.
Arch Mcintosh passed away at the
home of his son-in-law, Mr. D. E. Mc Mclver
lver Mclver la3t night.
Mr. Mcintosh was a genial, quiet
and cultured gentleman, who had by
more than eleven years passed his
three-score and ten. He was a native
of North Carolina, but most of the
time for the last dozen years he had
made his home in Ocala. He did not
gtir around very much but in the
circle in which he was known he was
highly respected and esteemed.
Mr. Mcintosh leaves three children:
Mrs. D. E. Mclver of this city Mr.
Gale Mcintosh, a prominent citizen of
Providence, R. I., and Lieut. Hugo
Mcintosh, now with our army in
Mr. Mcintosh did not suffer, much
in his last illness. It was a gradual
sinking into rest. He was a devoted
member of the First Presbyterian
church" of Ocala, of which head been
a ruling elder for the last ten years.
His eldest son, Mr. Gale Mcintosh,
Jn response, to a telegram from Mr.
Mclver, is on his way south. He will
accompany the remains of his father

to tne old nome in nicKory, in. u.,tiayse, a. xx.

where they will be laid to rest.
One of the saddest events of late
years was the death of John T. Clay Clayton,
ton, Clayton, who passed away Sunday morn morning.
ing. morning. Johnny Clayton,.as his friends knew
him, was a young man of twenty-six
years with a little family dependent
on him. Industrious and kind, he was
well ked by all. Misfortune had been
with him closely for some time. A few
months ago his baby died, and about
two weeks ago his brother, a young
soldier, stationed at Key West, also
passed away. Mr. Clayton went to
Tampa to attend his brother's funeral
and returning brought his parents
home for rest and consolation in their
grief. Then he was cut down almost
overnight. He was out attending to
business Friday, that night he was
compelled to take. to his bed and in a
little over twenty-four hours he died.
He wasJ laid to rest in Greenwood
this morning. The funeral services
were at his late home on Dougherty
street. Rev. R. F. Rogers officiated.
Mr. Clayton leaves a young wife,
sick as well as weighted down with
sorrow, a little boy, his father and
mother, and hosts of friends to mourn
the death of a honest, hardworking
and kind-hearted young man.
Ocala was saddened early Sunday
morning to hear of the death of Dun Duncan
can Duncan Elliot, who passed away Saturday
night at 9:30 at Sutherland, where he
had been since Sept. 17th, talcing a
business .and academy course at
Southern College. He was taken sick
three weeks ago with influenza and,
with a weak heart, was unable to
throw off the disease.
Duncan was born in Brooklyn, N
Y., March 8, 1903 and was only fif-
ten at his death. When a tiny, sickly
baby, seven months old, he was
brought to sunny Florida to get
strong and well. His widowed mother,
Mrk. Mary Elliot and her sister. Miss
Catherine Caul, who died last winter,
consisted of the family who have lived
in Candler and Ocala since.
The funeral will be at the Metho Methodist
dist Methodist parsonage at 3 p. m. today, con conducted
ducted conducted by Rev. Smith Hardin, his
pastor, assisted by Revs. R. Ira Bar Barnett
nett Barnett and J. R. Herndon. Miss Mar Marguerite
guerite Marguerite Porter will have" charge of the
Duncan was a good boy, a bright,
,well-behaved and studious lad, and
his friends will sorrow greatly at his
death. He was always a frail boy
physically, so it is not to be wondered
at that he succumbed to the disease
that has cut down so many strong
men in the past few weeks.
Everybody will sympathize with his
mother, who lost her sister; Miss
Caull less than a year ago, and is
now bereaved of the boy who was her
hope and pride, and who to bring up
to useful manhood she has lived a life
of" patient toil and self-sacrifice ever
since he was a little child.
